Not only is IXL the perfect tool for math practice, but it’s also easy to implement in your classroom! In fact, we’re amazed at the fun ideas teachers come up with. You just might discover your own creative use for IXL!
In the meantime, here are some ideas to get you started:
- Drive the lesson home. Reinforce lessons taught in class by assigning them for homework. Parents often comment on how much their children enjoy practicing at home—so much so, it’s hard to drag them away when it’s time for bed! Plus, you can check out the Class Goals and Recent Skills reports the next morning to see whether students completed the assignment, and how well they did. No grading required!
- Get (inter)active. Project IXL onto your interactive whiteboard and complete problems as a whole class. This is especially helpful as review before an upcoming test. You can even turn math practice into a competition. For added fun, make it a relay race—the fastest team with the most correct answers wins! Students will love the opportunity to show off what they’ve learned.
- Make lab time fun. IXL is accessible from any computer with an internet connection, so take advantage of it. Students can spend an exciting hour in the computer lab doing interactive math problems while honing their computer skills. Lucky for you, our real-time updates tell you everything you need to know about their progress, including whether they stayed on task.
Thanks to its flexibility, you can use IXL in a variety of ways to support all of your teaching needs. Now ready, set, go!
How do you use IXL in your classroom? We’d love to hear from you!
